ColAR-Using Augmented Color Drawings and Giving them Animation!

Welcome to the amazing app of ColAR ! This a FREE app that allows children to color pages, take a picture of the the coloring page with ColAR's app and watch their coloring page COME A LIVE! How awesome is that? Take a look at their demo video below. This is a FANTASTIC way to incorporate technology and creativity in one. You can even have students characterize their drawings with their own voices, creating a story line and presenting it before class. Furthermore, you can have them brainstorm how this app can be beneficial to other grade levels. Sometimes, feedback from students can be more effective than any "grown-up" counsel/council! :)
